Help Shape Florida's Greenways and Trails Vision

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is inviting public input regarding the new vision for the Florida Greenways and Trails System (FGTS). A new FGTS Plan is being developed to establish priorities and define the role of the FGTS in advancing Florida’s economy, tourism, health, alternative transportation, recreation, conservation and quality of life. This is the first new FGTS Plan since adoption of the original in 1999 by the Florida Legislature.

The draft Plan and Maps are now available for your comments on the Office of Greenways and Trails website. In addition, attend one of the open houses listed below to comment on the FGTS Plan, as well as the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) and the U.S. Forest Service’s Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST) Route Designation.

An open house will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 25, from 4-7 p.m., at Sarasota County Public Works, 1001 Sarasota Center Blvd.
